I haven't seen Ted, but I could tell right off that it was going to be
stupid. There are some movies that after you watch it you come away
inspired. Have you ever seen the Shawshank Redemption? It was probably
one of the greatest movies I've ever seen.
The message I think behind the movie is you can never give up on
your dreams, and in a way I think that in a way it is synonymous with
the story of America, back in 1776 the world was ruled by the whim of
Kings and Queens. Great Britain was the most powerful country on the
planet and we chose to defy the king and say "we are free, you have no
power over us anymore." And there was a point during the American
revolution where it looked like we might lose the war, but we didn't and
because of that we are one of the most powerful country's in the
world. I think that movie speaks to the American spirit, that's what America is about and I think that was a great message.
Another movie that follows that
theme is the lord of the ring, I liked this also because of the detail
that the director put in to creating a world that seemed so real. You
almost got the sense that this was a world that actually existed ten's
of thousands of years ago.
Most movies I think that are being put out are garbage right now. I
actually prefer watching documentaries, the latest one I have watched is
about the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire:
I never heard about it before I saw this documentary, and I found
out from watching this show that because of what happened here it led to
the formations of unions to stand up for workers rights which led to
the creation of the New Deal by Franklin D. Roosevelt which led to social security which made many peoples lives better then before the fire happened.
